Creating Stamp Model Files with the Quartus® Prime Software

To create board-level Stamp model files Definition for use with the Mentor Graphics Tau timing analysis tools:

  1. If you have not already done so, set up the Tau working environment.
  2. Create a new project or open an existing project.
  3. Specify EDA tool settings. In the Board-Level Timing Analysis box, select STAMP from the Format list.
  4. Type or browse to the location you want to use as the output directory for the Stamp model files. The default location is <project directory>/timing/stamp.
  5. To create the <design name> and <design name>_board.mod Stamp model files, compile the design.
    Note: The EDA Netlist Writer places the <design name> and <design name>_board.mod Stamp model files in the \<project name>\timing\stamp directory by default. If you have already compiled the design, and want to specify different EDA tools settings and generate output files without recompiling the design, click Processing > Start > Start EDA Netlist Writer.
  6. To generate Stamp model files that contain minimum timing information after an initial compilation in the Quartus® Prime software:
    1. Perform a minimum timing analysis on the design in the Quartus® Prime software.
    2. To generate <design name> and <design name>_board_min.mod Stamp model files, click Start EDA Netlist Writer.
